I was comparing the different responses of WP34sFlash and MySamBa:
WP34sFlash: would try to connect and the LEDs on the USB adapter would double blink three times - after a couple of seconds would say it couldn't connect.
MySamBa: would just immediately say it couldn't connect - but I didn't notice any activity on the LEDs indicating a signal was being sent.
As I was doing the reset/on and Send File cycle a few times with MySamBa to verify the lack of a signal - suddenly there was this frenzy of activity on the LEDs that lasted for about 30 seconds. After it stopped, I disconnected and turned the calculator on - and it had worked! Version number 3.2T3375!
Unfortunately, I have no idea why after about 100 attempts it finally flashed.
I suspect again, that the problem lies with the somewhat loose connection between the cable and the WP34s - the time it worked, the calculator was sitting on it's side with the cable running out the back. However, I had run through various positions several times before without success.
Or perhaps the authors included an internal lotto program that you must win in order for it to flash - so that only the extremely dedicated succeed?
